I do find that I don’t use The Odin Project’s discord channel very often, and in fact I muted the notifications. There is no shortage of activity on the discord channel, however I feel like it’s over-crowded at this point.

This (and the rest of your paragraph) sum up my feelings about Discord as well - I've seen people say they use it kinda like Twitter and just don't read back too far in chat, but at that point why not just be scrolling Twitter 🤷🏻‍♂️

The notifications from Discord are an absolute disaster imo, they're so frequent and overwhelming. I wish you could default all channels to muted and add back the channels you wanted, but as far as I know you cannot do that. They also make it so many clicks to mute channels because of the extra step where they ask for how long to mute for.

It very well could just be the way I want/try to use Discord, but I find it dreadful when communities are based on Discord.

Agreed. It also has to do with the amount of people in one server. If you have 15-20,000 people, that’s a small city lol. Hard to keep up.
